Black Lives Matter

On Thursday evening, June 4, Temple Sinai’s Board of Trustees passed a resolution endorsing the following statement issued by the Jewish Council for Public Affairs (JCPA) in response to the killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer and in support of Black and other diverse communities advocating for equity and ending systemic racism in America. The JCPA represents Jewish Community Relations Councils, Jewish Federations and other Jewish organizations across the country. It was signed by over 130 Jewish organizations.

    • We, the undersigned, are outraged at the killing of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers.
    • We stand in solidarity with the black community that have for far too long been targeted by police and have suffered rampant racism and unfair and uneven applications of the law
    • We call upon our government and law enforcement at the national and local levels to fully investigate and hold accountable all the involved officers and to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.
    • We call upon our government and law enforcement agencies at every level to institute sweeping reforms in law enforcement and criminal justice.
    • We pledge to join forces with the black community and other Americans to see through these changes to law enforcement, end systemic racism, and work for a more just American society.

Rabbi Millstein also organized and spoke at the Tenafly Interfaith Vigil in June, and was recently quoted in the  Record.
